Elisabeth & Zoe Fall Family Session in Breckenridge, Colorado

Elisabeth & Zoe Fall Family Session in Breckenridge, Colorado

Elisabeth Lawrence and Zoe with their dog Jasper met me in Breckenridge for a family mini session at the peak of the aspen glow.

Zoe has the best sassy personality and it didn’t take her long into the session to take charge. She came up with great ideas and some of the best poses were all her own!

Elisabeth and I both share something close to our hearts…Arkansas! She and I are both from Arkansas and eventually found our way out to Breckenridge. I had so much fun with Zoe and Elisabeth and I really love how this little session turned out!

My mini sessions are only 30 minutes long, but since we only meet in one location, it means that we make the very most of it. Believe it or not, this session was all shot in the same place!

Opsahl Fall Family Portraits in Breckenridge, Colorado

Opsahl Fall Family Portraits in Breckenridge, Colorado

This is the second time I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this family in Breckenridge. Erin Opsahl is a fantastic mother who also is the creator and administrator of the most helpful resource for women in Summit County, Colorado, Summit County Moms Facebook Group. Her last family session with me was featured twice this year, once in the local newspaper, Summit Daily, and also in print publication The Parent’s Handbook. Erin was spotlighted in these publications because of her finesse to create a group that connected many people in a town that feels rather isolated.

Now she’s supported by 1,580 female members (as of Oct. 2014) and has managed to create the go to source for mom’s wanting to be in the know on events and local info! I love her ambition to create and to continue to maintain this resource that promotes such an involved and healthy community.

I also love watching her kids grow up and I look forward to photographing this family for years to come!

Drewes Family Portraits in Breckenridge, Colorado

I love this family so much. Claire and I arrived in Breckenridge about the same time last summer. She’s our pastor at Father Dyer United Methodist Church (side note: click on the link to FDUMC and check out the website I helped build!) and she has become one of my closest friends in the mountains.

Her family is so fun and I tell her all the time, I don’t know how she does it. I can’t imagine raising THREE boys! But the Drewes boys are some of the best boys I’ve ever met; their smart, funny, athletic, outdoorsy and self-admitted rednecks…at least Will and Ethan, the two older ones. They brought along their duck dog, Lexi, which made this session nothing but a lot of fun!

It’s a joy to photography weddings, but an even greater bundle of joy when the couple keeps on coming back! I had the opportunity to photograph one of my 2009 wedding clients again for my first ever couple session. I didn’t know what to call it since I’ve never done one before. It’s not an engagement session since they’re already married, and it’s not a family session since there’s no kids…yet. OK I’m tired of dropping hints! Ivone and Jeremy are EXPECTING!!!

You can’t see her baby bump yet, but Ivone and I already have maternity photos in the works. I also can’t wait to photograph their precious little one when he or she gets here!

Have a great day!

Reynolds Family Portraits Bella Vista, Arkansas

Reynolds Family Portraits Bella Vista, Arkansas

A few weeks ago a friend of mine emailed me to ask if I could shoot his family portraits in Bella Vista during their traditional family gathering for Thanksgiving dinner at a lake house. I thought this was a great idea! Not just the family session, but gathering all together the weekend before since most people have more than one Thanksgiving to attend.

I had four families to shoot, and then of course we took one big family photo. I had so much fun hanging out with the Reynolds, Ratzlaff, Bayley, and Lyon families that day!

Here are my favorites for their family session.

I love this time of year! Fall is my favorite because of the weather, the bright leaves, and the impending holiday of being thankful! One of the things I’m so thankful for this holiday season is family and friends. Today, I will do what I’ve never done before…two blog posts! One for a part of my family and the other for some of my best friends.

You’ve seen the girls, now here are the rest of Shane and Malia’s family portraits!

Emma with her GiGI! My aunt Polly! I love her!

Coming up in just a bit, Jennifer and Jacob’s Fall engagement session!

Have a great Thanksgiving!
